Sexual Frolics Police Hunt
news of the stupid
BERLIN (Reuters) - The sadomasochistic sex games of two Germans prompted a massive police hunt involving over 40 officers and fire services after witnesses mistook their frolics for a violent crime, authorities said on Thursday.
Police in the western city of Duesseldorf began a search for a black Porsche after alarmed callers reported seeing a man in the car battering a blindfolded person on her hands and knees with a stick. By the time police arrived, the car was gone.
Fire services and a police helicopter assisted in the hunt until police tracked down the car's owner, a 31-year-old man.
"The interview with the 'suspect' revealed he had met with a woman and that the two indulged their sexual appetites together in the Porsche," police said in a statement.
The man said he had met the 51-year-old woman on the internet. The woman confirmed his story, police said.
